This rare chart covers from Florida and the Gulf Coast region through Central American and the northern part of South America. It provides a very detailed view of the Bahamas and West Indies with soundings, shoals and anchorages noted. We located the map in a few public institutional collections but cannot find catalog or auction records for it.
Issued folded, now flattened with some minor tissue repairs at fold intersections. There is some faint toning and a repaired tear in the Gulf of Venezuela.
